Paris Elopement at The Louvre

Jan 6, 2023

Paris is one of my favorite places in the world, so this elopement at the Louvre was a dream. Everyone on the creative team brought together some of the most stunning and romantic details.

A Chic, High Fashion Elopement

The couture bridal gown by Dylan Parienty Paris​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ was a quintessential Parisian bridal look. I was head over heels for the perfect tool details and the gorgeous lace. The breathtaking pop of color in the Nicola Bathie Jewelry​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ engagement ring was beyond perfect. It added just the right amount of regal to the high-fashion bridal look.

For our groom, Chris Von Martial was also a perfect choice. We all loved how classic the bride and groom looked together.

Floraison Paris​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ kept the florals all white to show each flower’s details and characteristics. I love the texture throughout the day and how much of a statement it made in the space. Keeping the color palette simple can be a beautiful way of letting the surrounding color and scenery shine.

The Louvre

Home to some of the world’s most beautiful works of art, the Louvre couldn’t have been a dreamier location for these bridal portraits. We used an array of locations around the famous museum to ensure plenty of variety. If eloping is on your checklist for 2023, this might be the perfect spot!

Dreaming of Eloping in Paris?

I have always loved the idea of eloping. Is there anything better than spending such a special day with the one you love exploring the world? Of course, I love big weddings and will always have a place in my heart for grand venues and large floral installations. That being said, I love the simplicity of choosing only the most important details and letting your wanderlust lead the way.

Dreaming about eloping this year? I shared a few of my favorite tips for eloping in this post a few months ago. I can’t wait to see you all around the globe this year!
